EPDM rubber roofing has a lifespan of 50 years

Rubber is a very strong, waterproof and durable material so makes for a long-lasting solution for keeping flat roofs watertight.

Rubber Roofs which are also referred to as EPDM which stands for Ethylene Propylene Diene Monomer, are also resistent to UV radiation, extreme temperatures and have a life of around 50 years compared to traditional felt roofing methods.

Another advantage of EPDM rubber roofing is that there is no risk of fire during installation as is is applied cold unlike felt roofing which requires the use of hot bitchumen to seal the joins. As a flexible material, it can stretch as the temperature changes from hot in the summer months to cold in the winter.

But like all roofing options, it is important that it is installed to a high standard.

That’s why it’s important to choose a reputable roofing contractor like South Essex Roofing to carry out the work.
